  1. windows 10 will not update


    Hey guys, first post so apologies for any mistakes. For the last few months I have been trying to install a windows update. I install it and restart my computer. It says update failed unable to install and then rolls it back. I then leave it and in the end it forces the update having the same effect.

    Personally I am not that bothered about having the latest updates but thanks to windows 10 you dont have a choice. What it means for me practically is that when i put my pc on sleep which is what i generally do, I now never know if during sleep mode it will have tried to update again and restarted closing everything I had open.

    In terms of windows and updating I am a complete technical novice, so if you could frame your response at someone with the least amount of knowledge needing the most help that would be much appreciated

    thanks in advance

    :)

  2. Windows 10 haven't updated to version 1511 --- How to find product key

    I haven't run the ISO disk as of yet, I want the current product key in hand, on a post it note, prior to doing that, not interested in MS bullS**T about it not being needed. 2 hours online with tech support and they can't cope with the question of how
    can the current product key be accessed in windows 10.

    I've never owned a Apple product, but I can never see buying or having another MS product in my household after this.

    NOT THE ONLY ONE

  3. How to Install Windows 10 on Devices with Limited Space

    Even though I have an external device with more than 40 Gb capacity and the assistant recognizes it, it still keeps asking me to free 5 more Gb from the (unit Cwindows 10 will not update :).

    I have 3'62 Gb free memory in (Unit Cwindows 10 will not update :). It asks me to free 5'63 Gb more. That'll make a total of 9'25 GB. The assistant needs 9'80 GB free memory to update windows 10 without any external device. Does this mean that my external device will only be used
    for 0'55 GB? Please I don't understant anything. I just want my laptop to work. I'd stay with my actual version but it keeps showing me ads, interrupting my work and deleting random stuff because of uninterruptible random updates. It has already freed 3 GB
    and I dont even know where from.

    Thank you.

  5. ahem. So after months of frustration and not being able to fix it, I just so happened to delete a rather large game from my hard drive and reinstalled the update once I had space, and its fine.

    Thank you so much for the in depth response, its nice to have a simple answer to a problem every now and again!
